LEGO Jurassic Park

L E G O   J U R A S S I C   P A R K
[Source: blastr.com] Jurassic Park was made in 1993 by Steven Spielberg and a massive production company and a budget of $63 million ($104.25 million in 2015 dollars). But there's a new stop-motion version of Jurassic Park, made by a father and a daughter and a few of their friends, plus $100,000s worth of LEGOs. And it's even more charming than the original.

This version, a mere three minutes long, hits all the highlights of the dinosaur adventure story—including the famed vibrating glass of water. Made by Paul Hollingsworth, a contributor to YouTube's DigitalWizardz channel, the builder explains at the end of the video, "I wanted to prove to [my daughter] Hailee we could do anything with LEGO." He certainly did.

Obviously, there's more to this production than just LEGOs; Hollingsworth leaned on some animation and greenscreen for some of the work. In fact, you can see the work for yourself. The movie even comes with a "making-of" video.

With any luck, the upcoming Jurassic World, which will be released on June 12, 2015, will be equally cool.
